Oregonians’ Efforts for Peace in the Middle East

This evening of dialogue features perspectives and memories shared by three Oregonians — a Jew, a Muslim, and a Christian — who for almost three decades have been struggling together from their common faith, to work, pray, and strive for peace in the Middle East. Rabbi Joshua Stampfer, Mr. Frank Afranji, and the Rev. Dr. Rodney Page first traveled to Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza in 1988, during the first Intefada (uprising). They then founded the Oregon Inter-religious Committee for Peace in the Middle East. On New Year’s morning in 1990 they started Cavalcade for Peace in the Middle East just before the first Gulf war. The Cavalcade continued, on New Year’s morning, for many years. Join us for an evening of reflection on the ways they have worked together in Oregon and increase interfaith understanding and foster peace. Jan Elfers, new Executive Director of Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon, will moderate the panel. Questions will be taken from the audience.
